This is a post I’ve written especially for the good folks at Hendersonville United Methodist Church. I’m so excited to share that I am now serving there full time as Director of Music and Worship.
Ivalene and I are delighted!
In the HFUMC September newsletter I clipped some “facts about me” from my press bio and invited folks to find out more about my story here on the blog.
Worship Changed My Life
This video is a message I shared on Wholehearted Worship at the Contemporary service in October of 2012. In it I share my story of how “worship changed my life” and my thoughts on the biblical foundations of worship. I think you’ll get a better idea of who I am and what I’m all about after watching this.
